What Post Apocalyptic Survival Gear Do You Need?


I was inspired by Cotopaxi with a fun challenge: What would I pack for survival during an otherworldly outbreak of the undead?

These days it seems as if everyone is worried that civilization is going to fall apart any day now.  While zombies may not be the most likely scenario, who knows what might happen? If a plague of the undead were to erupt, we would all need to have the right post apocalyptic survival gear on hand if we expect to have any hope of making it. A gun or a machete? Of course, but there's other stuff you'll need, as well.

A good backpack would be a must to store all of the gear that you'll need. The Taboche 55L backpack would be a good choice since it gives you plenty of room to store lots of equipment and is sturdy enough to stand up to almost anything.

You'll need to make sure you have clean drinking water on hand.  An Agua Water Bottle would be useful.

A good,  sturdy jacket to keep yourself warm and to provide some additional protection from the zombies is a smart purchase. A Pacaya insulated jacket gives you the flexibility that you need without restricting your freedom of movement.

And of course, you can't always find shelter when you're surviving the zombie apocalypse. So you might as well stock up on the Techo 3 tent. You'll always have a roof over your head, so you can stay out in the countryside and the woods, away from the city where the undead are plentiful.

When you're planning to survive the undead, don't just think weapons. Think gear, too!

Got Coffin Plans? Welcome to the 2015 October Frights Blog Hop




UPDATE 10/11/2015:

The winner of the pewter coffin on leather cord necklace is Ashley Martinez!  Congratulations!  Please email me at joliedupre (at) gmail.com to claim your prize!

***

There are images that we see most often during the Halloween season.  These include skeletons, graveyards, witches, ghosts, and coffins.

It's almost Halloween.  Do you have coffin plans for the big day?

A coffin is a box used for keeping a corpse.  They're also beloved by certain members of the undead, mainly vampires.   Vampires are mythological and based on folklore. Essentially, they are beings who survive off of the blood of other animals (especially humans). The idea of vampires goes back to prehistoric times, although the modern vampires are very different from the original undead monsters.

The vampires in my Pierce episodes are modern to the core.  They don't even sleep in coffins.  In fact, one of my vampire characters owns a coffin that he keeps in his basement, but he only lugs it out for his annual Halloween parties.

For your Halloween party, you can do the same.  Don't have one?  (Of course not.  Why would you?)  So how about you make one?

In celebration of this fun hop, I'm giving away a prize. Win this pewter coffin on leather cord necklace! Great for Halloween!

To enter, simply leave a comment below.   Then check back on October 11th to see if you're a winner!  I will pick one commenter via Random.org.

Announcing Pierce Vampire Serial and Win a $10 Amazon Gift Card!


To celebrate the launch of my paranormal romance vampire serial, I'm running a giveaway for a $10 Amazon Gift Card!


Pierce: A Vampire Serial, Season 1 - Episode One

Part 1 of 5

When vampire warning signs flog the city and people mysteriously disappear one by one, Alicia avoids the nightly hours like the black plague. This attractive, African-American lady spends her days waitressing all while struggling to make a living after a devastating breakup. Her city is already a danger zone, and the arrival of a Caucasian, blood-thirsty trio (Dagon, Vince, and Bess) only amplifies the dilemma. Dagon is a romantic treading between the lines of hopeless and hopeful, whereas Vince’s sexual compulsion doesn’t leave him with any room for true love. Bess is clearly attracted to the much-flaunted Dagon, but alas, her interest is unrequited. Could it be that someone else—of non-vampiric origin, has grabbed a tight hold on his non-beating heart? And with all these monstrosities running about, is Alicia truly safe in the comfort of her own home between sunset and sunrise?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Pierce is SERIALIZED FICTION divided into five episodes. (Think of it like episodes of a TV series.) It is quick reading, perfect for busy people. Parts one through four ends with CLIFFHANGERS with episode five as the conclusion of Season 1. Therefore, Pierce episodes are NOT STANDALONE BOOKS. Below is the schedule for Pierce, Season 1:

Episode One - August 10

Episode Two - August 24

Episode Three - September 7

Episode Four - September 21

Episode Five (Conclusion) - October 5

Give Us Your Best Excerpt: The Layneworth Monsters




Thank you for stopping by my blog as part of Give Us Your Best Excerpt: Paranormal Romance Blog Hop!  Enjoy paranormal romance excerpts by over 30 authors!

My excerpt is from my new novel, The Layneworth Monsters.  All of my work is available exclusively at Amazon.  You can purchase the book for $3.99 or borrow it for free as part of Kindle Unlimited or the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.

* * *

Blurb:

There's a vicious serial killer in town that's keeping the detectives of Layneworth and the entire city up at night. Some think it's a ruthless human, while others could swear werewolves are behind the havoc.

The Buscettos are far from human. Though they appear like the typical, charming family to the outside world—they're a sex and bloodthirsty monster race that has stealthily roamed the planet since the fifth century. Known as Zxxtergins, they often leave their victims mutilated and nude in their pursuit of carnal desire.

Detective Brenda Martin and her partner Robert Moretti are determined to crack the case, but at what cost? Vaccinations are said to keep the Zxxtergins at bay. When Brenda forgets to keep up with her vaccinations, does she too become a victim? Amongst all of the cross-species love and uncontrollable lust, loss of life both monster and human, is Layneworth, let alone the world, safe from the Zxxtergin race?

* * *

One of the main characters in my novel is bisexual.  Therefore, the novel contains both F/F and M/F scenes.

Excerpt:

 A few hours later, Brenda was in her car, headed back home. The butterflies in her stomach fluttered rapidly. This Litria was beautiful, but she was young, and she’d have to deal with the fact that she was young.
When Brenda entered her home, Litria was sitting on the couch, wearing one of Brenda’s oversized T-shirts and nothing else. The erect nipples of her perky breasts pushed against the fabric of the shirt. Litria flashed Brenda a smile. “Hi!”
“Hi, Litria. That shirt looks great on you. You look beautiful.” Brenda put her purse and briefcase down with one hand, carrying a bucket of chicken in the other. She had stopped at a takeout place along the way. With Veronica gone, fast food meals would be on the menu, at least for the near future. “Well...you must be hungry. I’ve got some chicken here.”
“No, I’m not hungry.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah, I’m great. I’ll just watch you.”
“Not a fan of fried chicken, huh?”
Litria walked up to Brenda. “I’m a fan of you.”
Brenda blushed. Who is this girl, and what am I getting myself into?

* * *

In the kitchen, Brenda removed a plate out of the cabinet and put chicken, coleslaw, and a biscuit on it. Before she could turn for the table, Litria was standing behind her. She hadn’t noticed the young woman had come so close.
Litria placed her hands on Brenda’s waist. “Do you need help with anything?” She whispered into Brenda’s ear. Her breasts pushed against Brenda’s back.
Brenda’s pussy quivered. “No...I...I...”
Litria’s lips were on Brenda’s neck.
The quivers in Brenda’s pussy intensified. She turned and stared into Litria’s eyes. The beautiful woman was like an animal ready to pounce. Brenda took a deep breath, and Litria’s lips were on hers before pulling away.
“Is there something wrong?” Brenda asked.
“No...you’re just different than the other women I meet.” 
“Different? I hope that’s a good thing.” Brenda smiled nervously. 
“Yes. It’s a good thing.” Litria walked back to her chair and sat down.
Brenda stared at Litria and tried to regain her composure. She took her plate and slowly sat at the table. “Umm...how old are you, if you don’t mind me asking?”
“Twenty-one,” Litria said.
“I see. Well...I’m thirty-eight. That’s quite an age difference.” 
Litria laughed. “Oh please, does it really matter?”
“Well...I don’t know. Maybe it doesn’t. It’s just that I’ve never been with someone so young.”
The phone rang, startling Brenda.
“If it’s Veronica, tell her to go away,” Litria said.
Brenda looked at Litria in shock, but it was mixed with agreement. She wanted to tell Veronica to go away. 
“Hello?” 
“Brenda, we need to talk,” said Veronica.
“Yes, we certainly do.”
Litria grabbed the phone from Brenda’s hand. “Look, bitch, Brenda doesn’t wanna talk. Come get your shit and get out.” 
“Litria!”
Litria handed the phone back to Brenda. “Go on, tell her.”
Brenda slowly reached for the phone. She felt oddly at peace, even as she heard the sound of Veronica’s voice, screaming at the other end. She put the phone to her ear.
“Who the hell is that? Wow! You just couldn’t wait could you?” 
“Please, Ronnie. We do need to talk.”
“Who was that? Answer me, Brenda!”
“Calm down.”
“Don’t tell me to calm down! I want to know who’s in the house.”
“Things haven’t been right between you and me for a while. It’s time to discuss separation. I’ll help you get settled and into your own place. Don’t worry.”
“I don’t need your fucking help!” Veronica slammed down the phone.
The women studied each other from across the table. Litria sat back in her chair, stroking her long hair with a look of satisfaction settled on her face.
Brenda gazed at Litria. She couldn’t explain it, but this young, beautiful woman made her feel more wanted and desired than she had felt in a long time.
“Now, eat your food,” Litria said. 
Brenda smiled. “Yes, ma’am.”
